“Why does love require blood?”
Jennifer ‘JJ’ Ritter, couldn’t have imagined the commotion her best friend’s cousin would bring to her high school world. Of course he was insanely handsome, brilliantly smart, and mysterious, but that couldn’t explain her sudden upheaval of emotions that bordered on obsessive. Nor describe the willingness to completely give herself over and devote herself to a man she barely knew. “Does love really require blood?”
This question would embark JJ on an emotional roller coaster ride that would lead her to abandon her sanity for love, and embroil herself in a centuries old war that could cost her everything. Dragon Amour explores the sacrifices for anyone who falls in love. Sacrifices that are sometimes good or sometimes bad, but are always the right choices in the eyes of the one in love. But are they…

Reviewed by Kim Anisi for Readers' Favorite Jennifer, also called JJ by her friends, is the protagonist of the YA fantasy novel Dragon Amour by Robin Ambrozic. When her best friend's cousin turns up, JJ's life changes in many ways. First, her heart finally starts to feel what love is, but then there are also some problems - like finding out her best friend's family's secret. There is more to them than meets the eye, and soon JJ finds herself in an age-old feud. She must make a decision about what to do with the feelings in her heart - and also find out how to keep herself safe. While a certain boy wants to protect her, he might not quite have the strength he needs. Will love be strong enough to overcome deadly dangers? I have to admit that I picked up Dragon Amour by Robin Ambrozic because I mistakenly read it as Dragon Armour and expected some sort of Oriental-American mix of fantasy and paranormal action. That's not quite what the book is, but I wasn't disappointed either way. It's clearly a book that is very enjoyable - if I hadn't liked the plot and the characters, I wouldn't have continued reading. The book is aimed at teenagers and young adults, but even as someone in her thirties, I felt the characters were fun and I could relate to some aspects of their lives. I really liked JJ's father, he seemed like a great guy and it must be nice to have a father like him around. I can't quite explain why, but the writing draws you in. It's hard to stop reading once you start. It's got a pleasant pace, entertaining, with some really funny parts, but also exciting, with some moments that make you shiver. It's absolutely lovely. I felt like I could relax with this book, forget about real life for a while, and just spend time with some interesting characters.
